As far as we can ascertain there has always been a Hardware shop located at 1 The Parade, Trumps Green Road, Virginia Water. Since the building was built in the late 1950's or early 1960's we understand it was run by a husband and wife team.
Graham Morley took the shop over in the early 1970's and lived with his late mother in the flat above. On 23rd February 2010 one Monday evening, he suffered a massive heart and died. Mr Morley was very well known, liked and respected in the local community and ironically just before he past away, he had been talking to many regular locals about retiring and moving to the New Forest as he was a great ornithologist and enjoyed all aspects bird life.
After his death, Barry his brother continued to try and run the business, however he lived in Suffolk and because of the distance involved in commuting, this proved practically impossible. Therefore the business was sold to the current owners who according to Mr Morley's brother, orginally had forteen other interested parties wishing to purchase the business not many wanted to retain the involvement in hardware.
The current owners are a family who have been involved in retail for over 50 years and have carried out a much needed upgrade to Morley hardware including new lighting, total redecoration and most recently a new outside fascia. The current stock level has been increased dramatically and we pride ourselves if we haven't got what you want, we will endeavor to get it as quickly as possible.
